The Aileoita is a beautifully crafted surf charter boat, specially designed from the ground up, by a surfer for surfers, specifically for a safety, comfort, and convenience standard, which is a step above the rest. Aileoita has been featured prominently in a number of Mentawai Islands related articles and features in a variety of publications and web sites all over the world. Aileoita’s crew are one of the most experienced crews available with a track record that is second to none, and consistently deliver their guests the trip of a life time. By request, the Aileoita is also available to take trips up to North Sumatra.

The main salon area has spacious sofas, with a big high quality TV, video equipment and a stereo system. There is full air conditioning throughout the interior and in each individual cabin.
The Aileoita has an immense back deck with wrap-around benches and a roof, and there is more than enough space for hanging out, and waiting for a bite on the trolling gear.
The staff on the Aileoita includes the captain, a mechanic, a chef, two deck hands, and a highly qualified surf guide, Sebastian Imizcoz, or Johann, both trained by long time surf guide guru, Jordan Heuer.
